In response to royf19's comment:
I've been a big Drew supporter/defender this season, and while I like him, I don't want him back.
I want Middlebrooks at 3B, Bogaerts at SS, Pedey at 2B and Napoli at 1B.
Of course it Napoli walks, I would accept Bogaerts-Drew-Pedey-Middlebrooks.
I want Salty/Ross catching.
I would like Bradley-Ellsbury-Victorino in the OF but I would accept Gomes/Nava-Bradley-Victorino.
The big thing is I hope the Sox don't trade Middlebrooks. He's a RH power bat. He's played seven full months in the regular season and was very good in five of the seven.
May: 6 HR, 21 RBI, .316 BA
June: 4 HR, 16 RBI, .288 BA
July: 3 HR, 10 RBI, .294 BA
Aug of 2012 is incomplete -- just 10 games/35 PA before getting hurt. He was batting .194 but did have 2 HR, 7 RBI, which would be about 5 HR and 16 RBI for a full month.
I 100% agree with this. I am also a big Drew fan, but I want Xander to start his MLB career. Im ready for some rookie/young player issues on the left side, but I think they will be just fine. I feel better about Xander than Middy, but I dont think they should trade him. Naps should be back. At least I hope he is. Middy is NOT playing 1b, so I hope folks here get that out of their head. The Sox see Xander as a SS and Middy as a 3b. End of story.
Salty is the best choice if they want a long term catcher. He should get 4yr offers, so If the Sox want him for less years, they will have to overpay.
